Checking things off the list

The hardest part of trying something new is not being too critical of the results. I embroidered Emma the Bunny’s face today and she’s finished. I’m not thrilled with how my decreases look on her face but I don’t think she looks bad for my first crocheted animal.  


I’ve also checked off the binding of my Sharon quilt and another scarf has been blocked and the ends woven in. Still lots more to finish up before the end of the year but it feels good to mark off 3 more items. Who knows if it will all get done but I know it won’t if I don’t try!

    I am in love with your lists. I am a list person and get such satisfaction from stroking things out as I finish them.
    Happy to see your goals and wish you well with them. Marilyn

    Where do you donate your knit items?
    I make lists too. Last Thursday I had thumb surgery and while I can’t do much for the next 2 months, I’ve been wandering around doing nothing for a week. So, today I made a list of small things to accomplish today, and I feel so much more focused!

    Love the garter stitch scarf. I was just gifted two skeins of yarn and now I know how I am going to use them!

    I think the bunny looks great. Embroidering the faces is the biggest challenge for me and your first face looks much better than mine did!
